I explore risk and resilience in agricultural systems using quantitative methods.

My underlying motivation is to enhance understanding of how we can encourage socio-environmental systems to develop and transform in a way that promotes both the betterment of society and the prosperity of the environment.

To achieve this, I seek to better understand observed historical relationships (using empirical analysis and data mining) and how systems may behave in the future or under intervention (using agent-based modeling).
